Merry Christmas from Makayla and Abby
The past few years have been filled with many changes. January 2017 I moved to an apartment in Colorado Springs with Abby, once I found out my parents were selling the house and moving to Indiana. At the end of February, the house sold and my dad took Trinity and Katie to Indiana. I was lucky enough to have my mom stay with me for a few months but starting June 2017 I was in The Springs all by myself. Jess would come down from Greeley about once a month to visit and go see movies! I was working with Ford Credit in the high delinquency department. In December 2017 I found out that I was going to transition to the Skip department in January 2018, which is where customers go when an account gets put out for repossession and the representative can’t find the car. Also in December, I went to visit my family in Indiana, which was much needed and solidified me wanting to move to there to be closer to them. During that trip I went to see my first Colts game in Lucas Oil Stadium. I had a blast and they won!
I want to give a shout-out to Risa and the rest of the Goodwin’s for taking me in as family once everyone left. Also thank you for watching Abby last Christmas at the last minute. Without you, I wouldn’t have lasted as long as I did and miss hanging out with!!
After many job applications sent out I got a job as an Accounting Technician for DFAS working with unmatched transactions that flow through one of the main accounting systems for the Army.
In March 2018 I was scrambling to get everything packed and loaded and my parents flew out to drive to Indiana with me. We made the over 1,000 mile trek North West in the span of 2 days and Abby was not a fan of that car ride! Hopefully, all of the snacks we gave her made up for it!
It definitely has been an adjustment living in Indiana with the humidity in the summer, almost NO sun in these winter months and no mountain range to look at, but wouldn’t change it because I am with my family. I have gone to great concerts since I have been here like, Journey/Def Leppard, Rascal Flatts and Pentatonix. I also have Straight No Chaser and Kelly Clarkson to look forward to! I am looking forward to see where this path is taking me!
